Viking's new Swallow Tripod complete with Video Fluid head.
From the smooth fluid head for effortless, fiddle-free panning, to the secure, anti-twist, sliding quick release plate, Viking have taken the best features of video tripod heads to give a frustration free platform for your telescope – sturdy enough for even the larger objective lens models on the market. For the legs, Viking have chosen aluminium for its balance of sturdiness, relative low weight, and lower cost. Three leg sections mean less time trying to secure the sections in position and more time observing birds!
